Critic Reviews of "This is Spinal Tap"VarietyMarch 26, 2009
For music biz insiders, This Is Spinal Tap is a vastly amusing satire of heavy metal bands.TIME MagazineAugust 19, 2008
For all its japes and jokes, the movie is really about exhaustion of the spirit: sitting in a bleak hotel suite at 4 a.m. with the bad taste of last night in the mouth and the feeling that tomorrow will not be a better day.Chicago ReaderDecember 17, 2007
The material is consistently clever and funny, though ultimately the attitudes are too narrow to nourish a feature-length film.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
Reiner's brilliantly inventive script and smart visuals avoid all the obvious pitfalls, making this one of the funniest ever films about the music business.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
It stays so wickedly close to the subject that it is very nearly indistinguishable from the real thing.ReelViewsAugust 15, 2002
The film is a composite of classic moments, all of which we sense could have happened to any of the classic heavy metal bands -- or at least to those whose members combined delusions of greatness with low I.Q.s.Mania.comMarch 03, 2014
Yes Nigel, you did go to 11. Where would cinematic comedy be if you hadn't?Cinema CrazedJanuary 19, 2013
Consistently funny, with sheer brilliant turns from every performer on the cast...Antagony & EcstasyJune 18, 2012
Returning to Spinal Tap always brings with it a pronounced sense of discovery, a freshness that is uncommon with movies generally and unspeakably rare in a comedy.ColeSmithey.comApril 14, 2011
[VIDEO] Although examples of the mockumentary genre existed before "Spinal Tap" this heavy metal comedy is considered an epitome of cinematic satire.7M PicturesMarch 02, 2011
If you didn't know this was a fake film, you could easily believe it's real.Reel Film ReviewsFebruary 13, 2011
...a sporadically amusing but all-too-uneven piece of work...
